The American Sentinel Health Insurance Company is best known for its mini-medical group insurance plans, which cover employees who do not qualify for traditional employer medical coverage. This includes hourly and part-time workers, independent contractors, and temporary workers.

American Sentinel mini-medical policies are available in 38 states, from Alaska to Alabama, and Massachusetts to Hawaii. The policies are guaranteed, and require no employer contribution (except in New Jersey). They include both prescription drug and vision plans, and you can go to the doctor or hospital of your choice.
The premiums for the mini-medical insurance policy depend upon your choice of premier, traditional, basic, or value plan. Customers in what American Sentinel considers the “New York Metro” and “New York non-Metro” areas also have different rates. Rates differ depending on your age and whether you are insuring yourself, your spouse, or your family. Mini-medical policies have deductibles, co-pays, and maximum payment thresholds.
If you volunteer as a firefighter, ambulance driver, emergency medical rescuer, or fire policeman/woman in Pennsylvania, American Sentinel Health Insurance offers an insurance policy that covers accidental death and dismemberment, accidental medical insurance, and optional plans that cover regional health expenses such as immunizations.

American Sentinel Health Insurance Company Claims
American Sentinel Health Insurance Company provides its customers with coverage cards that they must present before getting checked by their doctor or undergoing treatment at the hospital. It is up to the doctor or medical facility whether they require payment up front from the patient or whether they first submit the bill to American Sentinel and then have the patient pay the outstanding balance.
To submit a claim for the mini medical insurance plan, the customer must fill out the front of the Claim Form and sign it. The attending doctor should fill out the back of the form.
Claims are then submitted by mailing them to:
American Sentinel Insurance Company
P.O. Box 61140
Harrisburg, PA 17106-1140
To file a claim for a prescription drug plan, American Sentinel Insurance customers need to complete the same claim form and have their doctor fill out the back, indicating what the prescription is and why it is needed. Customers then need to show their Express Scripts discount card at the pharmacy counter, and pay the discounted prescription price. Along with the medical claim form, customers have to submit the original prescription slip (not the cash register slip) indicating the date, doctor, and prescription information.
For American Sentinel Health Insurance’s vision plan, policyholders need only show the NVA Vision discount card at the time of service, and pay the discounted price. Policyholders must go to a participating provider to receive the discount. No claim needs to be submitted.
